I use Excel 2013 64bit and PowerPivot. I added the server name (11.0.2830.24) but testing the connection leads to the message “The name is valid, but data of the requested type isn’t found.”
Any idea, what i should change?

Best regards from Hamburg/Germany
Thomas

The “trick” (?) was to select the cell holding CurrentFyMonth filter. Just checking ON the checkbox next to the Period field automatically brings it into the ROWS section, it is not even necessary to drag the field. The currently selected option in the slicer does correctly reflects in the table.

Tks! Guess I was still confused between “Metrics” and calculated columns. Got it to work. (I am still annoyed at the yellow “Relationships between tables may be needed”.)

Point 1 is still obscure for me. I am unable to get figure 4.51 pg. 79 to include the line 7 YTD under line 6 Q2, so I am not yet able to refer to cell A7 for the title of the spreadsheet.
Thank you very much for your assistance.

Works Perfectly. So simple yet I would have never come up with this solutions. Really appreciate your help on this one. THANK YOU! I hope others can benefit from this post as it seems like a common feature that folks would want to use when using dates.

Thomas helped me solve the problem by adding a dimension table for the exception (reject) reasons joined to the exception fact table and then adding the following calculation:

Total Reject Volume:=CALCULATE (Reject[RejectVolume], Exception)

Please note that previously the same calculation returned the grand total reject volume for each reason. But somehow adding the exception reason dimension and referencing the exception fact now allows me to get subtotals for the exception reason. Not sure I understand why since the measure doesn’t reference the dimension. Also, the grand total is slightly understated versus the actual reject volume (.001%), but pretty sure that it’s due to discrepancies in the fact table versus the dimension.
Anyway, really appreciate the effort by Thomas to assist me. Hopefully, the inner workings of DAX will become more intuitive to me as time goes on.
Thanks,
Ben

Got it to work by using the fact table for the filter instead of the exception dimension – as you suggested above. Not sure why the measure suddenly works when I added the bridge table, even though the bridge table isn’t referenced in the measure. Is it because I created the measure in the context of the bridge table, i.e. in the bridge table tab in SSDT? Sounds like there are some inner workings under the hood that I obviously don’t understand.
In any event, thank you for your time and helping me find a solution!

Could you share one with us?

Hmmm…
Let me think then some more…

It uses a measure to determine what is selected as is described in page 76/77
2 LastFyMonthofYear is not a measure but a calculated column, hence you get the error message you see. A calculated column can reference the fields in its table without having to qualify it completely. You can find more details in page 25.

Hope that helps.
